This book comprehensively reviews ultra-wideband (UWB) and UWB multi-input multi-output (MIMO) antennas with band-notched characteristics, with a focus on interference cancellation functionality. The book is organized into seven chapters that cover single band, dual band, and multi band-notched UWB antennas, followed by band-notched characteristics in UWB (MIMO) antennas. Further, it explains the mechanism of reconfigurability and tunability in band-notched UWB antennas, including advanced applications of UWB systems. Overall, it covers different techniques of canceling the electromagnetic interference in UWB in a concise volume.


  • Provides a comprehensive presentation of avoiding interference in UWB systems
  • Reviews state of the art literature related to UWB antennas, filtennas, and various reconfigurable technologies
  • Explains different techniques for producing band-notch characteristics in UWB systems
  • Includes discussion on historical perspectives of UWB technology
  • Consolidates different research activities carried out on the electromagnetic interference cancellation techniques in the UWB communication systems

Band-Notch Characteristics in Ultra-Wideband Antennas is aimed at researchers and graduate students in electrical and antenna engineering.
